There have been a lot of questions about Zoom Room 2 and how the posters sessions will run. This video will (hopefully) answer these questions and get you oriented
Note that posters (pdfs) and 3 minute video presentations of those posters are available for you to review right now from our “Program” or “Meeting Room” tabs. However you must be logged in to gcmas2021.org to view these. [Note this is not the same login as for OpenConf or gcmas.org – there is no single sign on.]
During the 1st 30 minutes of the official poster sessions (Tuesday June 8 10:05am-11:35am and Wednesday June 9th 3:40pm-5:10pm) poster authors assigned to those sessions have been asked to be available to discuss their work with you in breakout rooms in Zoom Room #2 (found in “Meeting Rooms” Tab). They can stay later, of course, but if you’d like to interact “live” that’s the time to do it. If you have other asynchronous questions, please use the forums either by starting at the “Forum” tab, or go to the Meeting Rooms and click on the poster session. Then click on the golden forum icon (shown below)
at the head of the list of posters and you will be taken directly to the forum of interest. Don’t forget to list the poster number in question to ensure that the authors see your post and click “Subscribe” to the forum if you’d like an email alert about a response.
Poster presenters should show up at Zoom Room 2 on the day and time (remember Eastern Daylight Time is UTC – 4.00 hours) of the start of the session and let our Zoom technician, Samantha know which room you should be in.
Note that you can also come here anytime during the conference to visit Vendor/Exhibitors and to just meet with colleagues for a quiet chat. Just come to the room, and ask Sam to assign you to a free breakout room.
Let us know if you have any additional questions about posters!
All the best,
Chris Church (Program Chair)
Tim Niiler (Conference Chair)
